This is a much better photo of the painting than was here before, also the title was always The Eagle View, which I have now put in.
I painted this in oils using many layers of glaze creating new images, some of which appeared unintentionally. There are things from the forest stuck in the paint too.
In this painting there’s a feeling of the shaman journeying from the lower world through to the upper world. As well as a journey in the outer world, there is always the inner world we journey through. The forest itself engenders this altered state of consciousness,
